I just busted the 2.5k 6 max and feel a bit tilted so im gonna write this blog to untilt me. A brief recap of the trip so far.
Ive played 3 events and busted in the first two levels of 2 and came 30th in the other. The other two events apart from the 1k were the 2.5k 6 max and the 1.5k 6 max. Apparently i suck at 6 max cos i busted pretty badly in both. Anyways ill talk through some hands i played in the 1k wsop event.
Firstly the wsop 1k was byt far the softest tournament i have ever played in (except maybe a freeroll). It seemed that everyone at my starting table had learnt poker from tv and had no idea about any poker strategy. A lot of them just decided they are gonna play every pot and fold if they don’t hit something, while others will play every pot and then bluff when they feel like it. Of course there are also the general live nits who like to fold AK 10bbs deep. My favourite players though are the ones who fold for two hours and then jam 8 bbs on your open with K8o.
Early on in the tournament i found things pretty easy and quickly doubled my starting stack to 7k without any big pots. Then some gangster sits down with 7kish and decides he is playing every pot and bluffing randomly when he misses. So i open AJs in MP to 300 and he calls on the btn. It comes Qh7h7d ( i got no fd) i bet 325 he snap raises me to 800. Im 90% sure he has air right now with some flush draws mixed in. So i call with the intention of check jamming blank turns. Turn Jd. I check and he bets 250 into 1600. I LOL. And decided to call and let him bluff river also although now im sure he has a flush draw. River Qd. I check intending to call any bet and obv cos he is retarded he checks back a rivered flush and shows 65dd. Wp
I then cooler someone to dbl back to 5k with AA vs KK (J). And go into the 100-200 level with 7k. I 4 bet jam ATs into TT and hit a flush to take me to 14k and then won a flip to get to 20k. Going into 200-400. The rest of the day i just pick bitches off and run super hot to end at 78k coming back to 500-1000 and the bubble.
At the end of day 1 i was completely shattered. The jet lag and the day of grinding saw me pass out instantly when i returned to my room. On day 2 i find myself on a new table in a new room and with B.Roberts (a friend of andys there fore a killer) on my left. I instantly tangle with him in a big pot when i 4 bet jam 55 into his KK for 35bbs each. This puts me down to a 30 bet stack on the bubble and inevitably go card dead for a full two hours. This was nearly fatal but i somehow woke up with JJ with 9bbs and got it in vs 44 and won. From there i didn’t look back and ran up a decent stack before i moved to a table with fatal error on my right with a pretty big stack. I play kinda of nitty and made a bad DJK shove with A4s from the c/o for 20bbs. And the sb tanks for 4 mins before calling with TT. I flop an A and a 4 to take that down. He ends up tilting his balls off later on.
A few flips later and i finish the day with 550k which is good for a top 10 stack with 50 coming left for day 3.
Will post more later....

Jack "doctor_fun" Powell has gone under the radar somewhat today but he has quietly amassed a 70,000 stack which puts him right up there with the chip leaders at the moment.
Asked if he had any interesting hands on his journey he replied, "No, just mostly all-in confrontations."
Not surprising, really, seeing as all players started with 3,000 chips.
So i got into vegas on friday and have spent the last 2 days trying to get over my jet lag. Ill write up a full report of the event when im finished. got 73k going into 500-1000 with 790 left and 620 paying. Not sure what average probs around 24k.

So i went up to manchester on thursday night with andy and stayed in some crappy hotel in salford. It did have gd internet tho so i grinded pkr 1knl, the pkr 17k and the ongame 1k (day1a). think i broke even in cash (not sure tho) after losing a flip to dannykk. managed 3rd in pkr 17k despite me having all of the chips with 8 left and the softest final table ive ever played. Most importantly i got through to 2nd day of the ongame 1k (its on sunday) with a reasonable stack. It could of clashed with the gukpt final table but i was hoping to two table them. lol. not sure if they would let me play on my laptop at the final table tho.
Anyways to the gukpt, i started of badly despite another ridiclously soft starting table. was down to 3k after i isolate two limpers w/ KJcc and got called behind and by the first limper. flop was QxTx7xc. i bet 1500 into 2.2k and both call (despite them having 3.5k and 2k back each). the 8c came on the turn and i reluctantly called the first ;impers 3.8k shove (pot was 6.8kish) he ahs J9 for turned nuts (lol). so i have 3.5k after that but dbl back to 7k pretty quick when i get AK in vs 99 and win. After this i tried to punt my stack in 4 way raised pot when i check shoved 98ss n 865hh after a bet and a call. and got nitrolled by AKhh. I suckout/hold and get to 17k.
After this i get to 37k after a few smallish pots and a big one where i flat JJ pre and bet 3 streets vs an overcaller on 852r9Q. I grind the rest of the day and dont get any hands till the penultimate hand of the night.
I had blinded down to 27k and opened AQs in c/o to 2.6k at 500-1kbb. btn 3 bet to 8k and im rdy to jam it in. however some delightful young player decides to cold call the sb. i thought he was pretty decent so figured his range was TT+ here and that he or btn would def call my jam and id be lucky to be racing. So i fold. They somehow get to showdown as the board bricks off (no queen came) and btn has AK and sb has 66 (wtf??). So i end up being really happy to now be freerolling a tournament where i shld of busted.
Day 2 comes along and im ready to get started (despite having to start with 23k at 1200bb). i fold a few orbits and get walked once. so decided to open J10s utg with 22k. obv this is pretty loose but table was playing super nitty and i felt i could get it thru. If i got flatted then my hand plays pretty well vs their flatting range. Also this was the bigest ante lvl (100 ante to 1200bb) so felt i shld be active. anyways sb flats with 35bb stack 9 (had seen him flat BB last hand with A7ss). Flop comes KJ6 with one of my suit. i check it back obv, and bet the turn when he checks twice. He calls. river is a blank and i check behind cos he could be checkcalling stronger hands (AJ, Kx mb) also if i bet and get called and lose i would have 10bbs instead of 19bbs. so i check and he has 22 and i win.
so im on 28kish and open 22 in the cutoff to 3.3k. sb flats and flop comes down pretty good J32dd. i bet 5k and he jams. I ahve my headphones on so dont snap call cos he says allin and i dont hear him but eventually i ask whats going on and delay snap. He has AJ and manages to turn a 5 for a gutshot but i hold vs the minii sweat.
After that hand i have 68k and was ready to take over the table. Once again i open 22 in mid position and the guy behind me falts with 22bbs (so obv he is v strong) sb flats (28bbs ish). flop comes 973r, and we check it around. turn is an 8 and i bet 6k into 10k and the sb calls while the other dwells and folds (said he has AK; learn how to jam preflop imo). river is a 2 and im thinking "easy game", I jam over his 8k bet and he snaps J10o. i cry inside a little.
so then i split a 35k pot with AK to AQ and go into nit mode with a 20bb stack. I finally get a hand at the 2400 lvl with a 40k stack. decided to open KQs in the c/o (sometimes id jame here with my stack size but felt matt perrins in the bb mite do something spazzy if i just open and always get it in preflop if i can). so perrins jams QJs with his 14bb stack me. Seems like a bad spot given my nit mode and short stack equals me having a range that crushes QJs, which i did have crushed. Unfortuanltely he binks a J and im down to 4bbs, and bust pretty quickly after.
Bit disapointed cos felt i was gonna get there on this one.
Mb next time...
wish me luck in ongame 1k.(sn THE_CHEEEESE)

Games was super good as always. It's £5-£5 game with compulsory 10£ btn straddle and a lot of £20 restraddle, so it plays more like a 10-20 game. We both sit with £1k each (split action) and andy is straight into the action isoing A9o pre (he didnt realise at the time this was a bad iso oop in this game) and bet/calling on 9c8d6c for 2.1k pot vs 65dd. He wins and starts to tile the super tard asian guy. This had consequences for the nxt hand andy played. Which made me lol and sigh hard.
Andy completes sb w/ T9ss (action starts on sb due to btn straddle), BB completes, tilted asian guy raises to 50. Btn calls and andy calls. Flop (9d8s5s) asian bets 120 andy calls. Turn was the Th and andy leads for 220 (at this point its obv he ahs T9/QJss to me anyways), obv the tard asian goes nuts and snap raises to 900ish (aka just grabs a bunch of 100s and snap puts them in pot). Andy Jams, tardfish calls and we lose to 85 when a 5 gets there on the river. Sigh we lose the £5k pot and the chance to super tilt the tardfish (who has deep pockets).
Next im up againts the tard fish and overlimp J10o in c/o and the btn checks. comes T75cc. i bet 75, btn calls, asian fish calls. Turn 8x, i bet 155 btn folds asian calls. River 9, asian snap bets 500 into 500, i sigh and think he rivered split. Only to see him flip QJo and am like wtf sir. wpwpwp
manage to grind back to 700 then someohow flop the nuts with AT on AxAhTh9h and double vs flush.
Andy meanwhile gets in tough spot in limped pot with 86o (he was on btn) on 864r after some guy bets he raises smallish and sb min raises. andy calls and then gets it all in on blank turn. I lol when sb shows KK and we scoop in 2k pot.
After that i manage to get super heored by a tilted fish (wasnt sure how tilted or how fishy he actully was at the time). I 3 barrell jam 1.2k effective with QJdd on Td6x4x9d4x only for T8 to tank call me on river cos obv there is only on hand im bluffing with on river and thats a big combo that i picked up on the way. Still obv retarded call.
I relaod for 500 and get AK in vs JJ on KJxcc and lose.
So we finish down 1.4k between us whichw asnt bad given how terrible we ran and im super excited to return to the game.
will be in manchester this weekend.

someone mentioned my blog at the GUKPT brighton and i remembered i hadnt blogged in a while so i thought id post a trip report.
After my standard -$30k, +$30k, -$30k cash swings. i decided i needed a break from online poker and headed down to brighton for the gukpt festival. Came down with a few online friends (johne147, andy teng, and richard).
Busted the two side events i played in pretty standard spots to wierd live donks. Moving on to the Main Event:
Decided to play Day 1a as i was already down here and didnt want to hang around. Turned out that day 1a was tougher than 1b as there were a lot of young aggro internet kids in the field as opposed to the usal amatuer retarded live donks.
Early on i ran up a huge stack on a very soft table that pitted me next to former gutshot dealer tony phillips. First big pot i won was kinda of a cooler for tony. He raises UTG and i flat AA utg+1 for deception and value, two others call and we go 4 way to flop. 10s2s2x was a pretty good flop for me so i just flat Tony's cont bet and guy behind calls. Turn 6x tony bets i bet 1k into 1.4k he calls. River 8x and Tony check calls a decent sized bet from me and shows QQ.
Then hand before break i raise J9s and flop a straight draw vs tony and 1 other. I bet both call turn i hit and get two more big bets out of Tony. At first break im Chip leader with 29k. I was Killing it and prety confident. After the break i got moved to a tough table with Johne147 and Trickett to my direct left. I get involved pretty quickly and raise AQo n the button at 75-150.
Trickett makes it 1.6k from the BB and says he has a 7k stack. I obv ship it in only to realise he has 9k total. He snaps AK and i lose 18k pot. Sucks as if i knew he had 9k i may have played hand differently. Anyway im down to 24kish and tilting a little bit so obviously Ian (phil helmuth) Fraser sits down to my right and starts playing super retarded but winning a ton of pots by being a luckbox. First one i open AhQx btn flats and fraser flats (25bbs deep or something) comes J8xhh which gets checked around. turn was the 10h which gave me a lot of equity so obv i fire 2/3 pot at which point fraser decides he wants to click it back in my face. i call and river K, so obv pay his K4hh off. fucker.
Next he limps and some guy overlimps and i isolate to 2k (200-400bb) with a 20k stack. Everyone folds and fraser decides to make it 4.2k total. He has me tilted by now so i call with J10hh to try and flop hot. comes K62r and he jams 2x pot.
Manage to get back to 44k after i raise AhQx (again) utg and BB defends. comes J33hh and bb leads for 2k into 5k. I call. Turn is Kh he checks i bet 6k with 12k back he jams. I obv snap as im not folding this and bink the 10h on the river to beat KJ. (guy thought i was a fish for calling the turn shove). Manage to get to 65k before fraser owns me again when he shoves 15bbs over my 3bb utg+1 open with K9o and gets there vs my 77. If he ever wanted hu for rolls id be there in a flash guy is so retarded, the hands he plays are so bad that i cant even write about them they just make my mind asplode.
So i finish the day on 45k which wasnt too bad. I also had 15% of Richard who made day 2 aswell.
Day 2 was pretty uneventful. 4 bet shipped 88 c/o vs btn 40bbs deep and guy folds. Bluff a couple of pots and stay around average. Then the blinds go up and im struggling with 25bbs. Folds to me in the sb and i look down at A5ss. Given stack sizes (26bbs effextive) i decided to Limp jam and ran into AK and lost. Pretty happy with how i played but obv didnt want to finish 28th when 22 pay. Meh.
Richard still in now with 18 left so ship that equity check for updates on him on blonde poker.
ill post back again once ive won some money.
